The Arroyo Clan/Dynasty isn’t a stranger to scandals and corruption scandals.  All you have to do is run a  simple Google search for: Arroyo Bronx corruption scandal and you’ll be set with enough reading material until the end of the year.  Or you can check out our list of some of our favorite Arroyo debacles.

Now the matriarch of the tainted Arroyo family, Assemblywoman Carmen E. Arroyo (AD 84), is accused of breaking New York State Election Law for non-disclosure of campaign related contributions and expenditures during this election cycle by her challenger, Angel Molina.  Not only is this blatant breaking of election laws appalling but what is even more disturbing is that out of 1,421 elected officials in New York State, Assemblywoman Arroyo leads the list with $33,648 in fines that she owes the State of New York, that is the people of New York for her continual breaking of the law these past 20 years.

Let that sink in.  Assemblywoman Carmen E. Arroyo, a representative of The Bronx is at the top of the list of offenders of 1,421 elected officials in the State of New York.

Why we allow these politicians to continue in office is baffling.  This is what is wrong with The Bronx political landscape and it’s like we are stuck in a cycle which perpetuates political violence (yes, it’s a form of violence and abuse); getting upset at them when they do wrong but when it comes to reelection time, we vote them right back in.

Challenger calls for investigation and enforcement for chronic campaign finance scofflaw.

Bronx, NY September 23, 2014– With less than forty-two days remaining until the General Election in November, Bronx Assemblywoman Carmen E. Arroyo (AD 84) is in violation of NYS Election Law for non-disclosure of campaign related contributions or expenses for this year’s election cycle, even though signatures were collected for her re-election.

New York State Election Law requires candidates with intent to appear on the ballot, including elected officials, to provide full discloser of all campaign contributions and expenditures to the State’s Campaign Finance Board or be subject to fines of up to $10,000, or face misdemeanor charges for willful violation.

To date, Assemblywoman Carmen E. Arroyo has not reported a dime’s worth of campaign cash or receipts, including $12,000 allegedly spent on attorney fees to knock me off the Primary ballot.

According to reports, New Yorker’s are owed approximately $1.7 million dollars in uncollected penalties from elected officials for failing to file campaign related activities, Assemblywoman Arroyo leads the list with a whopping $33,648 owed the state for non compliance during her two decades in office.

I am requesting the NYS Board of Elections Commissioners Gregory P. Peterson and Andrew J. Spano investigate this matter immediately.  State lawmakers should not be allowed to flout the laws they expect everyone else to follow.
